Visteon Innovation and Design concept portfolio and the e-Bee Concept

By 2016, there will be more than 8 billion consumer mobile connected devices and megatrends are indicating that by 2020 the car is no longer the most significant piece of technology in its owner’s life.

Today’s consumers are already expecting seamless connectivity, allowing them to stay connected with their social networks 24 hours a day, and social trends signal that younger drivers shun traditional car ownership in favour of car sharing and mobility on demand.

In response, car manufacturers are increasingly positioning themselves as mobility service providers and are actively exploring new options for car usage and ownership offering flexible door-to-door travel without compromising mobility or connectivity.

The e-Bee is Visteon’s vision of mobility for the year 2020. The concept explores new and alternative ways of using and owning a vehicle, including car-sharing, private ownership and short-term rental. Using touch-based displays and Cloud-centered profile storage, the e-Bee caters to multiple occupants and their individual requirements by ensuring the vehicle’s features are immediately familiar and intuitive for each user.

Designed to provide users an enriched ‘life on board’ and enabling seamless social interaction for all its occupants, the e-Bee creates a connectivity ‘bridge’ between the start and finish of the journey when, traditionally, communication and social interaction can hit a blind spot.

Visteon's extensive consumer research, supported by secondary data, shows that car buyers desire in-vehicle interfaces similar to those on their mobile phones, tablets and music players. Meeting these desires can be challenging for automakers that want to maintain brand identity and deliver a driving experience that is functional and promotes safety. Combining these research findings with Visteon’s expertise in design and human-machine interaction (HMI), the e-Bee’s interface is reliable, accurate and highly responsive while minimising the potential for driver distraction.

The e-Bee also challenges conventional vehicle architecture by rethinking the position of some major components of the vehicle, resulting in reduced weight and a substantially increased cabin space. Positioning the integrated climate system outside the vehicle cabin allows for new interior design options including an easy and unique user experience with the vehicle’s electronics and comfort features.

The e-Bee Concept

Drawing on Visteon’s experience of developing a range of vehicle concepts, the e-Bee also incorporates insights from Visteon’s market and trends research in defining the company’s vision for car owner and passenger needs in 2020. Articulating these consumer desires through consumer profiles representing Europe, North America and Asia. Visteon uses innovation to balance the car manufacturer’s practical requirement for affordable mass-manufacturing with the need for a concept that appeals to individual markets through a high level of personalisation - even down to the individual passenger level.
